House of Card's Challenge: Lots of Layers and/or Colors and a Fusion Card Challenge Card

Happy Sunday!! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!! Mine was busy-some chores and fun mixed in together.

I spent the day yesterday ripping my bedroom closet apart and FINALLY changing my clothes from summer to winter. The weather has been so warm here that I wound up keeping all my 3/4 length sleeves sweaters out. I still have a box in the crawl space to get out too and am not sure where I am going to put the sweaters in there now. I threw out shoes, gave away a HUGE bag of clothes and have a few things that I am taking to consignment. I felt so good after!!

I also went shopping for a tablecloth for my thanksgiving table with no luck. I have an 60" round and with the leaves in the table it is 96" by 60" oval. Do you know how hard it is to get a table cloth for that size? Most table cloths are 60" across, let alone find an oval cloth. Anyway... I think I am going to have to resort to a table runner with placemats and then custom order the table cloth at a later date that I was trying not to have to order.

Today I went for a walk with my neighbor and a Stella and Dot party at a friend's house. I wound up buying something that I was not planning (isn't that how it always is?) I wound up getting the silver Sutton Necklace.

I also had time to do a couple of challenges while I uploaded a years worth of photos to Shutterfly. Yikes!! I created a sympathy card for a friend who lost her mother.

I used a new die by Tonic for the background flowers and the flower is from Altenew "Vintage Roses" set.

I am entering this into the House of Cards Challenge: Lots of Layers and/or Colors. I chose to use the colors in the image they showed.

I know my gray is more blue gray then brown gray but it is what I had. I am going to have to invest in some more brown gray inks I think!!

I am hoping they will accept this card anyway!!

My second card is for the Fusion Card Challenge: Fusion JOY.

I chose to use the sketch and the "Joy" sentiment on the card I created.

I used a My Favorite Things "Winter Wreath" die and the sentiment was die cut out of corrugated kraft card stock using the Wplus9 "Seasonal Sentiments" die.

I added some Nuvo "Bright Gold" crystal drops on the wreath, as well as some "Diamond" Stickles on the snowflake.

The gray Bazzill was from my scrap drawer and I die cut it with the Avery Elle "Wonky Stitches" die.

Well, that is all from me tonight. I hope you have a great week!!
